Re: Speaker Choices for Lejonklou amplifiers…?

The minimum impedance is the one to worry about, especially in the bass. The Aperturas are very easy to drive and have a hight sensitivity btw.

That sounds like a very nice upgrade :-)

Re: Utopik upgrade

We don't know for sure yet, if Utopik will be available for the Exaktbox-I, as this would need a much more powerful power supply for 8 amp channels and DACs.

A very good friend has the Kudos 505's and is very happy with them. Currently driven by a Klimax Organik Exaktbox and 2 Klimax Twins. But he has also tried them passive with just one Twin and he also found that very good. So I would definititely not discard them, even if they aren't floorstanders. T...

Maybe you could make it the other way around: the limit is deactivated as a standard, but you can activate it at 80, if you want.

Re: Playground for practical listening exercises

I like B, it conveys the dreamy quality best at the beginning and bounces along nicely. A was very good to, C I didn't like at all.

Re: Boazu vs Tundra 2.2 (with various preamps)

Good as the WiiM Mini is for the price (€ 107,-), it's still a very basic streamer, that's miles away from a really good one.
You might wanna try the Majik DSM just as a streamer (not involving the digital volume) into the Boazu to see what happens.

My rack is to the left of the speakers, a little to the left of the center of the room. Unfortunately my tv (on a lowboard)has to be between the speakers, because it won't fit anywhere else.
